5.0 out of 5 stars An important healing tool for grieving men and women., May 12, 1999
From this book we learn about the experiences of men grieving various types of losses and how different their reality may be from that of their partner. The masculine grieving style is described in eloquent, lyrical language and mirrors the experiences of many men who seek counseling and support in my bereavement groups. The author gives sound advice about how women can better understand and support men who grieve, while also honoring their own feelings. Additionally, this book points out how unfair it is for our society to raise young boys as protectors, providers, and thinking problem solvers and then expect them to suddenly become sensitive, expressive emotional experts in times of loss. This work is a reality check for women who grieve - a call to re-examine the level of our neediness for emotional support from the men in our lives. It vividly demonstrates how important it is for parents to help children understand and express their emotions appropriately and to realize that doing so makes them both courageous and authentically human.
